    Hi chaps, as most of our members know we try and organise an LE or group buy release each year, bringing quality products to our member's and often with a generous discount.

    This year we wanted to reach out and get feedback on what our members would like or are considering. The brush market at the moment is rather split with the rise of synthetic and cheaper (yet great quality) badger brushes.

    I have had contact from Bernd. If we were looking at Shavemac it would be on the lines of Ebonite and or natural wooden handle(s) my orefernprebeing Snakewood.

    Basically before we start the ball rolling we wanted to ascertain if the order numbers would allow for a group buy. Please let us know and if you have any other ideas via this thread.

    Thank you. Wear sunscreen.

    Shavemac Ebonite LE would be awesome. I'd be in for one for sure!

    I'd be in if they were offering synthetic knots or handle alone at a decent price

    Nice choice of materials. Handle designs tend to be pretty good here, so I take that as a given. I do tend to prefer lower lofted brushes, so if that is an option I would consider joining.
    Thanks and enjoy the weather folks.

    We all know that there are no synthetics from Shavemac. And we all know Bernd prices (both group buy and private). I don't get your point.

    You have a thing for shooting from the hip first and asking later, don’t you? Anything in the future is an uncertain, and from the past we know that it has been full brush or nothing.

    My words were there just to understand the statement, Halvor. Someone
    criticizes indirectly, you know. I think that I wasn't clear: I had to say 'What do you mean?'. Really sorry.

    24mm 2band in Ebonite in a Semogue SOC 'tribute' handle and I'm in.

    I’d love a Semogue mixed badger-boar LE. Something like a Mistura knot in an acrylic handle, with the coloured portion in the ATG bluey-greyish-turquoisey hue.
